  • Open content editor and navigate to /sitecore/client/Applications/Launch Pad/PageSettings/Buttons
  • You will see groupings for each of the sections that appears on the start screen/launch pad
  • Add a new Launch Pad-Button item to the section you want it to appear in
  • Give it a name, icon and link
  • Your button now appears on the start screen
